Selena Gomez on her budding fashion career: 'There are no stupid ideas'


Budding designer Selena Gomez is adamant there is no stupid question or idea when it comes to fashion. The singer and actress has been showing off her creative side in recent months, designing an accessories collection for Coach with executive creative director Stuart Vevers. She was also snapped up by sports giant Puma as a long-term spokesperson and designer. When asked by British Vogue how to succeed in fashion, Selena said it's all about being open to new ideas.

"There is no stupid question, and there are no stupid ideas," she stated. "I think even the way something feels can inspire you, a song could inspire you to create something. Finding those moments for you to connect to your work. And also, just keep your eyes on your work, it is easy to compare yourself but it's important to stay true to what matters (to your work)." Selena recently showed off her sartorial side at the 2017 Fashion Awards in London. Wearing an ivory Victorian-style satin custom-made dress by Coach, featuring ruffled detailing, lace and subtle jewel embellishments, she completed her look with a bangle, dark lipstick and white lace-up boots.

"It's really important for me that Selena feels like her best," Coach head Stuart told British Vogue of her look. "I want (the dresses) to always have an ease to them: a sense of movement and freedom. Coach has a down-to-earth approach to luxury, which is different from the traditional European houses. I want to celebrate that ease; that New York City attitude."
